Color Changing


Guys,

I can not figure out how to change the color of a certain part of the board. The "Who is online" section that is in a "box", the "board statistics" section that shows "totals" and the "Separators" that distinguish sections of the forum. Is this in the CSS section? If so, can someone help me w/ the code? I looked at http://www.w3schools.com/Css/default.asp and can't figure it out! Thanks for any help you can offer me.

Hi,

For the Who's online box your would look here: Control Panel :: Board management :: Edit colors and theme :: CSS management

Then look for this:

/* WHOS ONLINE TABLE */
.forumlistwhosonlinetable {width:740px;border-style:solid;border-width:1px;background-color:#617E9B;border-color:#000000;}


The part I marked in red is what you want to change. If you don't know about hex color codes there is a fair list of the common colors
shown here which may help.

For the board stats table you look for this:

.forumlistboardstatstable {width:740px;border:1px solid #000000;background-color:#617E9B}

(same thing, the part I marked in red is what you want to change emoticon).

For the separator colors/images you find places for them here: Control Panel :: Board management :: Edit colors and theme

You are looking for this Forum list table separator background image: if all you are wanting to do is change the separator image being used.

Re: Color Changing


Everything worked like a charm except the separator stuff. I went here:

Forum list table separator background color:

It was blank.. i put in a color code and nothing happened. It stayed that "blueish" color.

I'm trying to change the header part that lists "forums", "topics", "posts" and "last post" to a black background and the separators you use (found in "arrange forums") I would like the background color changed to 550000. Do I actually have to replace the image?

The two other items worked great. Thanks again PR.

Re: Color Changing


The separators and forum/topic headers use two settings, one for the background color and one for background images.

The image will always set on top of the background color. Are you working on your current board or a new one? The reason I am asking is because you can make those changes in the CSS as well and I don't know if you need the CSS or ECL method to change it.

Re: Color Changing


I have been playing with a new one:

If you look at that, you can see that the separators & forum topic headers are so outta place with that color lol.

Thanks for looking at this for me PR.

No troubles emoticon

For your separator you do have it showing in your CSS, it currently looks like this:

.forumlist_separator_td {
background-color: #550000; color:#CCCCCC;
height:20px;
/*background-image:url(http://img.runboard.com/img/layouts/impaqt_1/separator.gif);*/
background-repeat: repeat-x;
padding-top: 1px;
padding-bottom: 2px
}

Your separator text color here is being overridden by the ECL. You can either change it there or add the color: #CCCCCC; to the following:

span.forumlistseparator {font-size:11px}


I would remove the part I have in red if you are not going to use a graphic image for the separator.
